The grains are not only high in fiber, but they are also free from gluten, delivering nutrition that helps support healthy digestion.

  • Serve dry or lightly moistened. See your veterinarian regularly. To help maintain freshness, we recommend sealing the bag tightly and storing it in a cool, dry location.
  • GESTATION: increase from 25% to 50% of the adult amount.
  • LACTATION: feed 'free choice'
Transition Instructions

When switching diets, it's important to transition your dog or puppy as it takes time for her digestive system to adapt to the richer nutrient levels in ACANA. Over a 5-7 day period, gradually mix in ACANA, increasing the amount each day so that by day 7 you are feeding 100% ACANA.

    Game changer!!

    By Melbelle on Sep 21, 2021

    I have a 10 month old GSP that has been on ProPlan large breed puppy, and ProPlan Sport. His coat was healthy and shiny, but as he grew and his stamina increased, his ribs and hip bones started to show and he definitely appeared underweight. I started really paying attention to his eating habits and found that he would only eat his kibble when he was absolutely starving and even then he wasn’t excited to do so. (I didn’t realize this sooner because my older dog will eat anything and was finishing his food off when I want looking!) My pup needed a grain-inclusive, high- protein and fat ratio diet since he is a very active sporting dog, and most others were either grain-free or too low in protein I have a 10 month old GSP that has been on ProPlan large breed puppy, and ProPlan Sport.

My pup needed a grain-inclusive, high- protein and fat ratio diet since he is a very active sporting dog, and most others were either grain-free or too low in protein. Found this based on local recommendation and it checked all the boxes, so I crossed my fingers, and fed it to him and WOW!!! I have never seen my pup eat with such excitement and enthusiasm. He was excited before I even opened the bag just from the smell! SO relieved we found this dog food! Just like people, all dogs are different and what works for some may not work with others (the ProPlan gets fabulous reviews and my dog hated it), but for us, this dog food is a game changer! … more

    Leia loves it!

    By TiffandLeia on Oct 11, 2021

    Leia really likes this food. She will eat it hydrated or as is. She loves it and hasn't had and tummy issues with it. It has really helped her weight development which she was lacking on with her prior food. I would recommend!

    Lab puppy would rather starve then eat this...

    By MKM423 on May 29, 2021

    We were feeding the Acana grain free puppy formula and pup loved it but our vet said to stop feeding grain free to be safe/ avoid illness - one of her patients, 1 y.o. Lab, was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy and no other reasons could be found aside from grain free food. We switched to Purina One large breed puppy food at the recommendation of another lab owner/ friend. Wanting to give our little guy a “better quality” food, we decided to try the Acana Wholesome Grains when we found it here on Chewy but he just doesn’t like it at all. We thought he was just being picky or maybe was having teething complications, but he barely touches his bowl when the Acana is included... it takes him We were feeding the Acana grain free puppy formula and pup loved it but our vet said to stop feeding grain free to be safe/ avoid illness - one of her patients, 1 y.o.

    My puppy love this food!

    By Jacey on May 27, 2021

    Everyone knows puppies are so picky and decide that they suddenly hate their food. We had Mr. Sheldon (who is 3 months) on Wellness puppy dry food, and from the start he was not into it. We tried it for awhile but he just would refuse to eat. We like the Acana treats so I wanted to try out their wet food for my baby and he absolutely loved it. I was mixing it with the wellness dry food and he stopped eating it. I just purchased the Acana Dry food for puppies and Sheldon loves it.

    not impressed

    By icecoffee on Apr 28, 2021

    I had high hopes for this food but was not impressed. - packaging: came with something on the bag (something sticky) and as it was only on the outside, I was fine with that. When I opened the package with a pair of scissors and tried to zip-loc it back, I noticed that the two sides of the zip-loc was on one side. The other side nothing on it, so making the zip-loc useless.. - food. Puppy is not a picky eater, she wasn't excited (vs. her old food) but didn't refuse it either. After transition period over 2 weeks and now that I have her on this 100%, she started chewing on her paw, which I think is due to this food. Happy I tried this, but we will be going back to her old food

    Hopefully shelter dogs aren’t picky...

    By KeelyM on Apr 7, 2021

    Based on the nutrition profile, I really wanted this puppy food to be a winner. My little guy HATES it, though. Not only does he refuse to eat it, my older dog won’t even touch it (thought I might get away with sprinkling some of it in his food for a treat—he refused the whole bowl). I’m giving 3 stars because it appears nutritionally sound, but I should give it 1 star since it seems to be an expensive bag of food to be donated.

    Love This Puppy Food

    By Rookie on May 23, 2021

    We only feed our puppy with ACANA puppy food. I think this one is much more better than the old version of ACANA puppy food. Better poopoo. Will definitely try other new versions when our Rookie grows up.

    Puppy likes!

    By Tammy on Apr 9, 2021

    We switched our 5 month old puppy over to this food after he suddenly decided he 'didn't like' the other premium food he had been eating. He likes this food, coat and eyes look good and stools are small and solid. I did a lot of research before choosing this food and I plan to move to adult maintenance in this same line when the time comes.

    great food!

    By Mike1990 on Apr 11, 2021

    Switched my Vizsla puppy from Wellness to Acana and noticed a big difference - he is eating more, seems to enjoy it more (sprinkled with some Acana freeze dried topper) and is peeing much better stools. Definitely would recommend for active/hunting puppies as the higher fat content works out very well for their lifestyle.
